Water lillies can teach us some wonderful lessons. Even though their roots are at the bottom of the pond ….. they always rise to the top and float above the water. They make use of the nutrients from the mud to blossom and beautify their environment. Sometimes ….. we can be ashamed of our roots. Maybe we come from a dysfunctional family. Maybe we have roots of rejection or feel unwanted. Maybe we are uneducated ….. or maybe we have made mistakes in the past. We can let that drag us down or ….. like the water lilies ….. we can use it to make us rise to the top.
